Manago Hotel Review

This historic hotel is a good option if you want to escape the touristy thing but still be close to the water and attractions like Kealakekua Bay and Puuhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. Don't let the front TV room creep you out—you have not checked into an old folks' home. The place is authentic Old Hawaii, and the restaurant serves up great pork chops and island favorites. Dwight Manago—whose grandparents, Kinzo and Osame Manago, built the main building in 1917—has maintained one Japanese-style room with tatami mats and a furo, a traditional Japanese bath, and this is the room to book. The other rooms are nothing special, but they're clean, and those in the newer wing have great views high above the Kona Coast.
